Impressive complex. You can only visit the ruins of the old abbey, but even these are impressive and give a good view of the magnitude this buildings had. Very nice and surprisingly modern architecture of the new Abbey, but this can not be visited as there're still monks living. Orval beer and cheese are produced on site and can also... More

Orval Brewery offers a tour through the monastery ruins, very well organized. After taking the tour, you can get beer and souvenirs. A little up the street there is a bar, for some tasting.

Nice place. You may see some ruins if you pay the app 7 €. Apart from that there is only a very modern shop. Merchandise and beer.

Bouillon is one of my favorite towns to visit for the mussel restaurant (Roy de la Moule)and castle. The Orval Monastery is a short drive away. The ruins of the old monastery are nice to walk through and you can try the beer and buy the official Orval glasses here. To me, one of the highlights is that you can... More

Large parking outside the monastery. You can visit the shop (selling beer, cheese and souvenirs) and visit the ruins of the old monastery. The new monastery (late 19th century if I remember correctly) can be glimpsed through the fences, but not visited, Neither can the brewery itself be visited. You can see the source from which the water comes for... More

Free parking just outside the Monastery - €5.50 per adult to walk around a modern Expo which describes the brewing process. No chance to see inside the brewery or the cheesemaking taking place due to hygiene restrictions. Outside the expo, there's the chance to walk around the ruins and modern pas f the Monastery, with some great historic displays. Worth... More
